No Longer Showing.

The Kitchen proudly kicks off its annual discussion and performance series with percussionist and composer Eli Keszler, sculptor Ajay Kurian, and performance artist Alexandra Tatarsky.

Each season since 2012, artists and writers across disciplines have gathered as part of The Kitchen L.A.B. ("language, art bodies), a year-long series devoted to unpacking artistic and cultural terms as their meaning shifts--and may become more resonant or ambiguous--over time.

This year, the series will revolve around "representation," particularly as the term at once conjures critical strategies in art from previous decades; the necessity of diverse publics; and, against the backdrop of precarious governing institutions, recent impulses toward non-representative social structures on both ends of the political spectrum.

October 1, 6:30pm. Free.

The Kitchen L.A.B. is made possible with support from Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
